IndyCar at Pocono
For those of you not watching. Nasty wreck on the 1st lap of the race going into the tunnel turn 2. WOW. 5 cars involved including: Hinchcliffe, Rosenquist, Rossi, Hunter-Reay, & Sato.
Sato was upside down on the back of Hunter-Reay's car.

All drivers did walk away from the wreck.

Sato pulled the usual Sato.... Drive Like Rambo.... Bozi move on the first lap of the race.

RACE IS ON TV STATION - NBC SP

Dodged a bullet, that could have been wicked. Glad no one was injured. I love Sato when he pulls off those moves, but only when it works.

He’s an idiot, they usually don’t work. Especially on the 1st lap!

Andretti Autosport and the Rossi team thrashing and trying like hell to put the car back together and get as many points as possible. They will take the minimum 2 lap penalty for working on the car under the red flag.

They were actually given a 10 lap penalty. And Sato is an idiot. Turn 2 of a 500 miles race at a track that is no stranger to tragedy. There is a difference in racing hard and being dangerous. That was dangerous and I hope he is held accountable.

Lots of folks on social media saying they shouldn’t race Pocono, by that logic they shouldn’t race Indy either. Racing is dangerous

I didn't watch but when I saw Sato was involved that was all I needed to know.

Why is there such a double standard for Sato. He is always on the gas and driving hard.
Now if he was doing that same stuff and throwing "sliders" on a Saturday night. He would be a hero.
